Gujarat Borosil inaugurates 2mm tempered glass facility Solar glass manufacturer Gujarat Borosil today inaugurated the world’s first two mm tempered glass production facility at Bharuch in Gujarat.

“We have successfully completed production trials of fully tempered 2mm solar glass. This heralds a quantum leap in the mission to increase the efficiency of solar modules. It would further lower the cost of power and significantly improve the viability of solar power for consumers,” Borosil Vice-Chairman Pradeep Kheruka said in a statement issued here.

He further said the 2 mm tempered glass is not only lighter than the current world standard of 3.2 mm, but it also absorbs less solar energy while allowing higher irradiance to reach the solar cell.

“This will help in harnessing the solar energy more efficiently than done ever before. The use of high transmission solar glass on both surfaces will allow the use of bifacial solar cells which will enhance module efficiency by 30 per cent,” Kheruka added.
